Ok, I have pretty inflammed lymp nodes basically all the time. I don’t understand why and my doctor doesn’t really either.
If they are “inflamed basically all the time”, how was it determined that they are inflamed? If you aren’t sick, why were they being checked out?
It’s part of my bi-annual physical for sports. I determined it being inflammed because there are times when they aren’t bulging and tight, therefore I find that when they are not like that then there is a difference and they must be inflammed.
But you have no pain in the area and aren’t sick, they just feel more firm? Firmness alone doesn’t indicate “swollen lymph nodes”, especially if you are the only one who has diagnosed the “firmness”. I think the best advice is a second opinion, but that may be why your doc didn’t see a need to do anything.[/quote]
Yeah I guess you’re right but I still think I’ll try no lactose for a few days and see if the firmness/irritation subsides.
Thanks everyone for the input.
